School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) Dean Travel Fund

The Dean of The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) has provided opportunities for supplemental support to undergraduate engineering students and activities that align with the mission of SEAS, allow for the professional development of SEAS students and/or use engineering in the service of others. The SEAS Dean Travel Fund has two tracks of funding: The Engineering Students Service Learning Travel Support Fund and the Engineering Groups Conference, Networking and Competition Fund. Funding amounts are based on financial need, and only one application is required per student group. The application will need to demonstrate how the SEAS Dean Travel funding will support the trip as well as explain other sources of funding.

Who May Apply 

Any undergraduate Columbia Engineering student who is in good standing with the University and is a member of a University-recognized student group or University-affiliated program. 

Deadlines

All students who intend to apply for the SEAS Dean Travel Fund must meet the deadline requirements for travel for which funds are being requested. For domestic trips, groups must apply four weeks in advance. For international trips, groups must apply eight weeks in advance. Applications that do not meet these requirements will be deemed ineligible for funding.
